Message from our colleagues in Berlin:
The Innovation in Governance Research Group at the Technische Universität Berlin is pleased to publish a Call for Papers for the First Berlin Forum Innovation in Governance, which will take place in Berlin on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 May, 2010. This Forum is the first in an initial series of four, which will take place on an annual basis until 2013.
Entitled “Studying the emergence and development of new forms of governance”, the first Forum aims to lay the conceptual and methodological grounds for studying the genesis, dynamics and politics of new forms of governance.
We therefore invite you to submit proposals for papers that discuss and/or probe particular approaches to conceptualise innovation in governance and trace the development of governance patterns through time and space.
We also invite proposals for poster presentations. A planned poster session will include a concourse with five minutes for each poster to highlight questions, approach and findings. We will be able to cover travel expenses for a limited number of participants. Please therefore indicate your need for travel funds when submitting your proposal.
The deadline for the submission of all abstracts is Sunday, 14 February 2010. Please submit your proposal via email to firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of February.
